Full description
First up on the itinerary is one of Iceland’s biggest waterfalls, Skógafoss. Those who are up for the challenge, can climb all 527 steps to the observation deck for a unique perspective. If you’re lucky, you’ll have a sunny day and see big rainbows through the waterfall mist.

Then you head over to the star of the tour, Sólheimajökull glacier, where you'll hike for one hour through an otherworldly glacial landscape.
